For more information about Nintendo Switch Online, please visit the official Nintendo Switch Online website.
We've been waiting for Nintendo to launch its online service for the Switch for a while now, along with any perks it has beyond simply being allowed to play online. When the service launches, online multiplayer in games will be locked behind the subscription. The service includes online play, save data backups for compatible games, and access to a compilation of classic NES games. 3, and Donkey Kong are confirmed for launch - alongside 10 still unannounced titles. Friends can even watch each other play single-player games online, and "pass the controller" at any time.
Nintendo Switch Online is cheaper than PlayStation Plus, and Xbox Live Gold.
Nintendo Sends Out Press Release For Nintendo Switch Online Service
Once Nintendo Switch Online releases, you'll need a subscription to play your Switch games online.
Nintendo Switch Online App*: The Nintendo Switch Online smartphone application can be used to enhance the online experience for compatible games through voice chat and other features. Nintendo says that an actual, final release date will be announced as we get closer to launch, but the company better get to work in deciding on one because we're closing in on that deadline quickly.
